    I installed it and ran a log. Boost held just fine.

    The thing I'm trying to figure out is the "Blow Off" sounds from the intake. Its more so like a high pitched "JDM" sound when I get off the throttle.

    Does anyone have a video of what their car sounds like with a ko4 and the dv+?
    I have dv+ with cts ko4 and have no blow off valve sound, but there is some funky swirling sounds that scared me at first thought turbo was bad. I have stock air filter box which may be muffling some of the sound compared to if you have a cold air intake. On my tt with mad max dv and modified air filter box it sounded like a blow off valve and i believe the dv+ is essentially the same thing as a mad max mod for the 1.8t.
    Nothing to see here, keep moving!

Tried Redline 5-40 and honestly it is just too damn thick at operating temp. Car felt bogged down and i lost a few mpg. Tossed some 300v 5w-40 in, and holy hell. Gained back the mpg and the car feels rev happy as hell. My oil temps also decreased over 10f at 90mph. I kept thinking it was all in my head but I kept noticing how eager it felt. The double Esther race oil shizzz seems to be no joke. Itís also 0% shear to 392f which is higher than our motors will every produce. You can order it on FCP and have lifetime replacement. Itís $35 per 2L can (very expensive) but FCP replaces it free when you send the old stuff back lol. Thought Iíd share. Iím a true believer in many things being snake oil but it feels like Motul 300v is not one of them. Iíll post a UOA after like 4-5k Miles. Seems like a good fit for a toasty K04 motor that gets ďdrivenĒ

    have not had to change oil yet in the avant as when it was due had the oil consumption rebuild (thank you AoA) so just about ready in another 1000 miles debating what to run in it. Ran rotella t6 in the tt which worked well debating what to run in the avant.

    What cold air intake are guys running with a CTS K04? I currently have the carbon fiber kohlefaser lufttechnik intake system, but doesnít fit like I want it to due to hose issues from the intake to the turbo. Any members running an open system or have suggestions for consideration?

    Is there any value in a APR ko4 tune if I wanted to get a cheaper non-APR turbo? Long story.

    I think APR would only put a tune on a car with an APR turbo right?

    Its just the price that changes.... if you run an APR k04 they reduce the cost of the tune for you, if it is another turbo they make you pay full price.... (Atleast that is how it works in CO)

    APR - B8 A4 Avant

    Was this a custom tune with logs and iterations, or a one flash deal?

    Looking forward to your results!

    Hey Red4life5,

    Do you think they're releasing before spring 2019. This is only reason I haven't installed my K04 yet because I'm waiting on their tune.

    I was the K04 Beta 9 months ago. Your tune is probably based off of my file ;-)
